Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

I'm not sure what exactly you mean by "I make steam warming sex as body is moving". However, unsual or inappropriate beahviours during sleep can be part of what is known as a sleep behaviour disorder. Sleep problems and sleep beahviour disorders can often be triggered by underlying stress.

Since you say that you are going through a lot of stress currently, it would be a good idea to see a psychiatrist for a detailed psychological assessment. There are medication which can help regulate your sleep and control such sleep-related problems. Learning stress management techniques and relaxation techniques can also be beneficial to you.

Wish you all the best.

Hi there, thanks for asking. If you begin a sexual behavior in sleep it is called sexomnia. It is one of the disorders related to deep sleep like sleep talking and sleepwalking. People who ave such a condition, begin their deep sleep soon after falling into sleep. It could be a single problem or it may be seen beside other issues like sleep talking, etc or even sleep apnea. You should ask your doctor to assess your sleep. Sometimes, they are seen with seizures at nights, so epilepsy possibility should also be assessed. I wish you a good health.
